As many of you will know, a tragic accident earlier this year robbed us of our beautiful angel, Bronwyn Rose Taylor, who was just 16 months old.
As a family, we are determined that our daughter’s passing should not be in vain, so we are working hard to alert parents, grandparents, babysitters and child carers to the hidden dangers lurking in every home. Ordinary, everyday objects which we probably take for granted but which, in the hands of a young child, can prove fatal.
As a result of Bronwyn’s death, a new child safety campaign was launched in Staffordshire and all new parents are now issued with a brochure guide by the Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent Child Death Overview Panel (see attached).
It’s designed to raise awareness of potential hazards in the home and covers everything from scalding to falls and car seats to blind cords. But the print run is limited, meaning that only ‘new’ parents currently have access to a hard copy.
We believe that EVERYONE responsible for the care of children should be able to learn from the vital safety advice contained in this guide.
So we are looking to raise enough money to print an additional 10,000 copies. That way the booklet can be distributed to all relevant outlets in the county, from libraries and nurseries to doctors’ and dental surgeries.
The cost to do this is £1,300.00. And we are hoping the business community may be able to help.
We are looking for sponsors to make a donation, large or small, so that we can help educate those responsible for the care of children about the daily risks lurking in what should be the safest place possible – our own homes.
If you feel able to support us to achieve our goal and help to save young lives in Staffordshire please let us know by using the contact form on this website, or by messaging us on Facebook or Twitter.
We cannot allow other parents to suffer the needless loss of a child. Bronwyn was a shining light at the heart of our family and we owe it to her to make this happen. With your help, we are confident that we can.
Thank you so much.
